Netflix has got its chequebook out again and the streaming service has shelled $30m for worldwide rights for the next film from director Antoine Fuqua.
Netflix continue to outlay cash on a range of interesting and diverse projects and this one certainly has the potential to be something special. The streaming service has announced, reports Dark Horizons, that it’s now secured the rights to The Guilty, a single-location thriller that takes place over the course of a morning.
Jake Gyllenhaal will star and Training Day director, Antoine Fuqua will helm.
Fuqua and Gyllenhaal have collaborated before on the excellent Southpaw, with plans for this project to be shot later this year.
The film will be written by True Detective scribe, Nic Pizolatto.
The Guilty is based on a Danish drama that premiered in 2018 at Sundance, which you can catch on Netflix right now. More on this one as we have it.
